Despite her film resume, Laura Hope Crews considered herself a theatrical actress, appearing on Broadway from 1903 in over 40 major productions, literally until the day she died.

Influential Broadway director, playwright and actress; active there from 1903- 47 (see "Other Works").
Her second husband was A. Ronald Button (b. 1903, d. 1987), an attorney. He began practicing law in Hollywood in 1928, where he had a number of celebrity clients, including Hedy Lamarr. Later, he specialized in corporate and business law. Eventually, he was appointed California State Treasurer.

Was the father-in-law of producer/studio boss William Goetz (1903-1969), married to Mayer's daughter Edith (Mrs. William Goetz). As one of the initial investors in Darryl F. Zanuck's fledgling Twentieth Century Pictures (which would soon merge with ailing Fox), Mayer insisted that his son-in-law be hired so as to get him out of MGM. Goetz served as executive vice president of Twentieth Century-Fox, heading the studio during Darryl F. Zanuck's leave of absence to serve in the military in 1942. Zanuck, fearful of his underling's ambitions, forced him out of the company upon his return in 1943. Ironically both Mayer and Zanuck felt that Goetz was decidedly unimaginative and a mediocre film executive. That same year Goetz formed International Pictures, which merged with Universal in 1946. Goetz would go on to become one of the most successful movie moguls in the post-TV era.
